Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis

 

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

 

Candidates should direct any concerns about the program, faculty, supervisor or fellow students to their advisor or, if preferred to a faculty member, supervisor or the Institute Administrator.  The individual receiving the complaint will bring it to the Progression Committee or the Education Committee.

All grievances are taken seriously and the Committee will discuss specific remedies.  The candidate’s faculty advisor (or appropriate surrogate) will meet with the candidate to discuss satisfactory resolution of theproblem.  If the complaint raises ethical questions it may be referred to the Society’s Ethics Committee. The Education Committee has appointed an ombudsman outside of that committee to adopt the role of intermediary formally.

These same policies and procedures apply to faculty, supervising psychoanalysts, and psychoanalysts of candidates, except that the Education Committee serves as the grievance committee for faculty, SA’s, and TA’s.
